Description

The instruments provided in the Fitzgerald Suture Kit are high quality stainless steel and you can use them in actual practice as well as in your learning sessions.

The real standout in the kit, however, is the Fitzgerald suture pad

  • Reuseable—student can continue to practice by removing completed sutures and starting over: same stitch or different one
  • Differentiated layers: epidermiis, dermis, sub-cutaneous fat, muscle
  • Each layer's thickness reallistically emulates human flesh
  • Epidermis looks and feels like real human skin
  • Both epidermis and dermis will hold suture without pulling out.
  • Pre-cut with different patterns eliminating a need to cut your own "wounds" for stitching
  • Replaces messy pig's feet or chicken breasts
